Wake County Transit Plan

The public is invited to read and provide feedback on the Wake County Transit Choices Report, drafted by Jarrett Walker and Associates and Kimley Horn.  The Report is now available to the public; and feedback on the Report can be made through Thursday, March 5, 2015. The Report begins with the development of a strategy for identifying and allocating transit investments.  This is the first step in a multi-step planning process for the Wake County Transit Investment Strategy. Public input will be used to develop an Extended Transit Choices Report later this spring that will include transit service scenarios.  The Report is available at www.WakeTransit.com, and information sessions will be announced on the website.

The report includes summaries of the following attributes and covers existing transit service and usage, along with:

  • Maps illustrating existing transit service by route
  • Data on existing service frequency
  • Data on existing transit ridership, including mapping of highest passenger origin and destination locations
  • Land use mapping including existing and anticipated land uses, density, major activity centers, etc.
  • Mapping of existing traffic volumes and capacity on key roadway arterials
  • County’s current performance against several peer cities

The public is invited to read the report or to hear an overview before providing feedback.  Feedback can be submitted as general questions or comments on the website or through the online survey. Two of the first sessions will be:
